J. Anthony

  • Chief Photographer / Videographer

Chief Photographer & Hall Pass Podcast Host.
Born and raised in Washington DC,  and versed in many areas; like tennis and music- just to name a few. Often times like many others, a passion for one has trumped so many others, imagery. He is a natural-born experience-influenced photographer and it all began from a high school photography class. As a teen, he learned how to take pictures and develop in a dark room, and it has stuck with him ever since.


He later attended Morgan State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, and became a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Justin is also a proud father and has a close relationship with his son Jace.


With the increase of social media, he began taking more pictures, and more social network followers requested his photography just the same. Shooting local events, like Up and Up Open Mic, helped master his skills as a principal photographer. While attending the Trayvon Martin march in Baltimore, MD, he took a memorable photo of the crowd and submitted it to CNN iReports, and his photo was vetted and used in an article and his career as a photographer has taken off ever since. He has photographed several artists and events; from India Arie, Juicy J,  to Lifting As We Climb Foundation, Black Alley Band, and so many others, just to name a few. He has his own photography business, Vision Made Klear Photography and Chipped Diamond Magazine is pleased and fortunate to have him as a part of our executive staff. You can find many of his projects featured on our site.
